I entered the I Heart Faces “Hands” contest Sunday night, and it was one that I had really tried to prepare for. I took pictures of hands EVERYWHERE, and the best pic that I could come up with came from a wrestling tournment. Gyms are notoriously lacking in good lighting, and it caused my focus to be off just enough to keep the picture from being great. But, it was the best of what I had (or so I thought), so I made my post and linked up.
And then, a couple of people commented on how surprised they were that I didn’t have a pic of my bughuntin’ Adam holding some creature. And I totally slapped my head in disbelief, because how MANY pictures like that DO I have? And then I remembered the pictures I took in September of him holding a tiny little lizard that he’d caught, and I went to the folder. And then I cried. And then, I emailed Amy and Angie to see if I could switch out photos, and while they graciously would have let me, it really IS against the rules. You have to dance with the one who brung ya, and I just couldn’t break the rules. So, here are the pics that I SHOULD have chosen from to enter the contest and that might even have had a chance at being considered for a top pick. And hey, they made True Story Tuesday post, so they got their 15 minutes of fame, right? So why am I still crying?
